Answer- Thank you Anirban for ur question,earthing noise is a very common issue with single coil pickups and can be handled in a couple of ways.Firstly i would recommend you try to sheild the pickup cavity with tin foil,you can get this foil at www.stewmac.com another option is to check if the inner circuit is properly soldered and check for dry solders if any,an experienced electrician will be able to check for this,lastly try active electronics or the Lace sensor noiseless pickups,lots of brands are making noiseless pickups nowadays including fender,try all options and get back to me.never settle for a noise gate as it kills your tone.
